Hello and welcome to the parents and carers of all our new Year 7 students moving up to Old Buckenham High School in September.

My name is Sean Alderson and I am the teacher in charge of Transition and Year 7. Myself and the rest of the school are looking forward to meeting you all and inviting you in to our school community.

With the easing of lockdown, this year our Year 6 transition to high school should run much more smoothly and we are determined to ensure that all families have the support they need to be able to start with us in a positive way.

We are working hard to make your child's transition to OBHS as worry-free as possible and we will keep in touch, making sure that you are kept informed of developments as we go through this term.

You will have already received some information from the school and we will be adding to this transition page over the coming weeks.
